  • West spikers come on late, sweep Robertson

    At home in the friendly surroundings of Mike Marr Gym, the Robertson Lady Cardinals played well enough to upset visiting West Las Vegas on Tuesday evening.

    But the Lady Dons had other plans, and while they may have kept them secret early in each of the three sets, those plans didn’t allow for any upsets.

    West, 9-4 overall and the No. 5 ranked team in Class 3A volleyball, won 25-23, 25-10, 29-27 to stay on track for a District 2-3A title.

  • WLV runners take on Duke City

    When the original plans to run in Capital’s Jaguar Invite this coming Saturday fell through, the West Las Vegas cross country teams replaced that meet with one in Albuquerque.

    Considering the squads’ successes in the Duke City to date, that might not be a bad Plan B.

    This past Saturday, West’s boys placed third and the WLV girls were fourth in Volcano Vista’s meet on Albuquerque’s west side.

    I now know the answer to the old adage: “What is worse, a bee in your bonnet, or a burr in your bathrobe?” I’ve been stung by a bee or two, but I haven’t had burrs in my bathrobe very often.

  • Little Miss Pageant is Saturday

    Submitted to the Optic

    Who would have thought a little girl from Las Vegas would get to live in Spain at a young age?  Ten years ago Cheryl Conway was crowned the first Little Miss Las Vegas at the age of 12, and today she is living and studying in Granada, Spain.  

    “It shows that through vision, hard work and persistence dreams can come true” said Philip Ortiz, executive director, of the Miss Las Vegas Scholarship Organization.
